Stayed 3 weeks in May 2012. Bed was comfortable, but otherwise the Silmande is old and tired. The staff are friendly, and do what they can. One of the two elevators did not work for over 2 weeks. The pool was nice but there were not enough lounge chairs and many were broken (rusted in position). Laundy seriously overpriced ($7 per shirt; $4 per T-shirt). Good breakfast buffet. Internet was slow but reliable. Ended up moving to the Azalai Independance for the rest of the stay.
